SUMMARY

Very smart 1,275cc Mk IV with a number of pleasing upgrades.

DESCRIPTION

  • Introduced in October 1966, the Mark IV featured a 1,275cc A-Series engine and the removable convertible top was ditched in favour of a permanently-affixed, folding top of greatly improved design 
  • This very smart example dates from late 1966 and was exported to California when new
  • It returned to the UK in 1997, was converted to right-hand drive, and has only covered around 10,000 miles since
  • The history file includes invoices covering servicing to date and interior and mechanical upgrades (£4,000 in 2011)
  • Finished in Signal Red, the car presents superbly and was featured in Classic Car Weekly Jan 2020
  • On offer from a significant private Collection of British motor cars
